# A Double Chain Markov Model (DCMM).

### Description

This class describes a Double Chain Markov Model (DCMM) represented by Pi, the probability distributions of the first
hidden states; by A, the transition matrix between hidden states; by RB, the transition matrix between sucessive output.
march. Dcmm extends `march.Model-class`

class and therefore inherits its slots.

### Details

The model used here is described in :

Berchtold, A.: The Double Chain Markov Model. Commun. Stat., Theory Methods 28 (1999), pp. 2569-2589
